NEW YORK, ICFF (May 14, 2016) ― Showcasing striking, contemporary design and superb performance, the new Beale high-arc kitchen faucet collection features a Selectronic touchless model offering the unique option of switching to manual operation by simply sliding a movable door to cover the sensor.
Delivering effortless wave-on/wave-off functionality, the Selectronic Beale faucet helps reduce the risk of cross-contamination in food preparation. This exclusive Selectronic proximity technology delivers dependable, touchless operation to improve hygiene, while also making it easy to access the faucet when the user’s hands are full or dirty.
The option to change to manual operation provides flexibility with the Selectronic Beale to suit the user’s preference and comfort level with touchless faucet technology. By gliding the movable door to cover the sensor, the faucet becomes familiar to operate manually by guests and others using the kitchen. An LED indicator signals that the hands-free mode has been activated.
In addition to this hands-free model, the Beale collection also includes a hand-operated pull-down kitchen faucet and a design-matched manual bar faucet. All three luxury faucets feature smooth, single-handle functionality for ease of use and clean, attractive lines, sure to provide a brilliant focal point in any modern kitchen setting. The American Standard assortment of stainless steel kitchen sinks are beautifully accented with the Beale faucet collection.
Supplying sleek, intuitive functionality, this collection was designed to place the user in complete control over common kitchen tasks. All Beale faucets offer a choice of two spray patterns ̶ stream and spray ̶ as well as a pause feature that is useful when filling a large container outside of the sink.
Beale faucets offer unparalleled performance from two brand-exclusive docking system features: Re-Trax, which provides smooth operation and superior spray head retraction; and Dock-Tite, the magnetic mechanism that keeps the pull-down spray head tightly secured to the spout.
This Beale collection is available in a choice of two long-lasting finishes: polished chrome and a stainless steel that coordinates with contemporary-styled kitchen appliances and accessories.
All three Beale faucets deliver powerful spray and stream performance employing a water-conserving flow rate of only 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm). This is more than a 30 percent reduction over the volume used by industry-standard 2.2 gpm kitchen faucets.
Built for lasting beauty, these Beale faucets feature a metal body, deck plate and ADA-compliant accessible handle. Ceramic disc valve cartridges guarantee a lifetime of smooth, drip-free operation, while the faucet’s robust, braided nylon spray hose provides kink and fray-resistant durability. Pre-attached, color-coded stainless steel supply lines are provided for easy installation.
The Beale faucet collection, ranging in price from $350 to $700 depending on model and finish, will be available at kitchen and bath showrooms and wholesalers nationwide starting in June 2016.
